Gilberto Ceceña Nuño is one of the communicators with more presence in Sinaloa. Its most known activity is Cartonista Editorial in the newspapers Noroeste of Sinaloa with the title of "Cizañas de Ceceña". Ceceña recognizes that this activity does not take more than an hour daily, but it is the one with social influence that most satisfies him. We convinced him to show it on his ink in his Creative Studio of his house, in the middle of a lush garden where he recognizes that more flowers than ideas are born. Ceceña ́s DNA He began in the editorial board at age 17 in the newspaper El Debate of Los Mochis and arrived in the newspaper Noroeste on the day of its inauguration on September 7, 1973. He began in the editorial board at age 17 in the newspaper El Debate of Los Mochis and arrived in Northwest on the day of its inauguration on September 7, 1973. He began in the world of advertising in 1973 also in Los Mochis, a profession that until today he practices. Gilberto Ceceña Nuño is therefore the cartoonist and active publicist with more mileage in Sinaloa thanks to his self-taught training, since he has not stopped studying and updating. He has won state and national awards for journalism and advertising, but that's another story. Gilberto Ceceña says that to make changes in his community it’s no longer enough to be a journalist, it is also necessary to be an activist. Gilberto Ceceña says that to make changes in his community it’s no longer enough to be a journalist, it is also necessary to be an activist. For this reason, it is frequently to see him participate as a promoter and adviser of movements and institutions that seek the common good. Despite so many activities and interests, he gives himself time to himself in his family, his friends and especially in himself, recognizing that he is very introverted. He considers that his social and professional mission is reduced to five words; "Helping those who will help". As the protagonist, it takes away a lot of time that can be invested in supporting others. Gilberto Ceceña Nuño is, in a few words, the essence derived from his family formation, his best communicating friends and his accomplices in the projects of common good.

Knowing the place where the cartons that we have read for many years have been made, where your Cartoonist imagination has been inspired by the daily events in our community, it really was a very pleasant experience. The first 360 photograph I made at noon, when the sun was in peak and did not generate hard shadows inside. The second one I made at 8:00 a.m. in the golden hour, precisely to have a soft light and to emphasize the yellow and orange tones.

Little Planet How this Virtual Tour was made A few days ago, my friend Engineer Enrique Maytorena, CODESIN General Manager, invited me to elaborate the virtual tour of the inaugural flight of Culiacan Volaris to Phoenix. The idea excited me a lot and I proposed to manage the corresponding permits to make a spherical photograph of the interior of the cockpit of the pilots, I think it is the first time that one is made in our country and many places in the world. They are very difficult images to achieve due to different situations ... the reduced space ... the detail that is required of all the instruments on the dashboard in front and on the roof of the plane ... the high contrast, which I achieved with a very nice technique that Are the Masks of Luminance in Photoshop ... and above all because to make the photographs of the interior I was permitted only ... 3 minutes!!!! I finally think I got it! I am very happy with the resul
The region that is occupied by the municipality of San Ignacio was known since the beginnings of the conquest in 1531, as Piaztla or Piaxtla; word that has the meaning of “place of pumpkins” or “place of gourds”. According to the toponymy of the towns of Sinaloa, it is believed that the word comes from the Mexican “piaztli”, gourd or squash to carry and drink water and from the locative word, “tlan”. San Ignacio de Piaxtla, during the first years of colonization, was part of the province of Chametla, pertaining to the New Galicia, until in 1536, due to local indigenous upheavals, the Spanish leave the region. Don Héctor R. Olea mentions that the toponymy of San Ignacio de Piaxtla means “place that has Saint Ignatius of Loyola as patron saint”, complemented with the form “piaztli” and the vocative “tlan” which mean “place of blues”. By the middle of the 18th century, San Ignacio de Piaxtla was part of the five main mayorships in which Sinaloa was divided, remaining inside the San José de Cópala authority, along with the towns that currently belong to the municipality, which are: Santa Apolonia, Ajoya, San Agustín, San Juan, Cabazán and San Javier. In 1732, with the establishment of the sole governorate of Sonora and Sinaloa, the territory is divided into five provinces, two in Sonora and three in Sinaloa: The Province of Sinaloa, from the Mayo River to the Mocorito River; the Province of Culiacan, from the Mocorito River to the Elota River; and the Province of Rosario, which had the Cañas River as its boundary, and it is the one San Ignacio belong to. During the years following 1786, in which the intendances system was implanted, the demarcation of the region of the Piaxtla River was not altered. In 1813, the constitution of Cadiz came into force; article 310 considers the installation of municipal buildings in towns with more than 1,000 inhabitants. In 1811, don Jose Maria Gonzalez Hermosillo, an insurgent commander of the army that won in the mineral of El Rosario at the end of December, on January 8th, suffers a defeat in San Ignacio at the hands of the Governor and the General Captain of these provinces, don Alejo Garcia Conde, the few that could scape dispersed in the mountains. Any attempts at insurrection in the northwest were then halted. In 1824, decree of the Congress of the Union forms the Western State, rejoining the states of Sonora and Sinaloa. The Constitution of 1825 declares that the Western State would be divided into 5 departments, subdivided into parties, two in Sonora and three in Sinaloa. The departments belonging to Sinaloa were those of El Fuerte, formed by the parties of Alamos, Sinaloa and that of its name; the department of Culiacan, integrated with the party of its name and the party of Cosala; and the department of San Sebastian, formed by the party of its name, the party of Rosario and the party of San Ignacio de Piaxtla. Once the definitive separation of Sonora and Sinaloa into two federal states was decreed, the first local constitution issued in 1831 established the new division in the state, now composed by eleven districts. This first legislation also decrees that each of the districts will have, added to its name, the name of one of the most outstanding insurgents in the fight for independence; the district of San Ignacio was assigned with the name Abasolo, in honor of don Mariano Abasolo, who was one of the first to join to the cause. In 1852, the San Ignacio district disappears to join the Cosalá district, remaining as a party, but from 1861, with the new internal division of the state, it returns to be constituted as a district, with a prefecture on the municipal head, and subdivided in municipalities, mayoralties and attendants. In 1870 four municipalities formed the district of San Ignacio: the municipal head, San Juan, San Javier and Coyotitan, with their respective rural settlements. By decree in 1915, published in the official newspaper on April 8th of that year, the municipality of San Ignacio was created, and its category was approved in the Constitution of 1917 which, in article 12, adopts as a new form of internal government, the division of states into free municipalities. The devil’s chapel The municipality of San Ignacio has an endless number of legends. Some are true and the others are stories that people have been creating over time, but have undoubtedly become important icons of this place’s history. One of the biggest attractions that catches the attention of visitors is the “Devil’s chapel”, where the remains of Bernardo Escobosa are resting. This chapel is located just 100 meters from the crossroads that the syndicate of San Juan leads and which is connected to the state highway, on a small hill which can be reached after climbing for 20 minutes. This one can be dominated in all its splendor once you arrive at the municipal head. The people who visit San Ignacio for the first time wonder with astonishment about the history of this chapel, and, although nobody knows the history of it, they talk about what they have heard through their ancestors. Without a doubt, one of the most famous stories is the one of Bernardo Escobosa’s arrival to San Ignacio in 1840 from Spain, bringing with him various haberdasheries, fabrics, mirrors, perfumes, and other articles, which he started commercializing among the inhabitants with the desire of becoming San Ignacio’s most rich and powerful man. His greed was so big, that he decided to sell his soul to the devil. His wish wash fulfilled and he became the most thriving merchant of the municipality. This led him to have enormous properties and extensions of land. Finally, when he died, according to the legend, his relatives took him to the cemetery to bury when a strong wind snatched the coffin and placed it on the hill where the chapel is located, where he then was buried. Others say that it was his wish to be buried in that place to manage his properties from above, and that he also asked for his family to be buried in that place too, as well as all his male descendants to be named after him. Another very different story tells that in fact he did arrive from Spain and that he had brought merchandise to sell, which he exchanged for gold. He traveled around the mining territories of San Ignacio from that time, such as Ajoya, San Juan, Los Frailes, El Tambor, San Javier, El Chilar, El Carrizal, Campanillas, among others, thereby developing street trading in success, as early as 1869. He was a very lucky and famous man, which earned him the envy of many people who began to defame him by inventing that the money he had was a product of the pact he had made with the devil by selling his soul. Bernardo married, had four children, widowed, remarried, and had other children. The Escobosa that exist in Sinaloa descend from this mythical and legendary character, known as the one who sold his soul to “the devil”, and that after more than a century of being dead continues giving reasons to be talked about.

Little Planet Photo Gallery How this Virtual Tour was made At the end of February, a group of friends visited San Ignacio, one of the most beautiful municipalities of Sinaloa. We arrived very early at the house of Professor Eduwiges Vega Padilla and there were already a lot of people waiting for Dr. Efraín Romo Santos to give them a sight examination as part of the social service he provides through his private assistance institution, Buena Vista Sinaloa. My wife and I went to take pictures guided by my friend Guillermo Vega Aguilar throughout the municipality head, capturing images of some places of interest like the Church, the town square, the Municipal Palace, Cristo de la Mesa (or the Christ of the Upland in English), as well as the houses of some beautiful families, including those of Don Alfonso Lafarga Espinoza, Don Adrián Bastidas and Professor Don Rafael Vega. It was an unforgettable day where we enjoyed the hospitality of the inhabitants of this beautiful corner of our estate. We hope to return soon and make another virtual tour.
Apart from the makeshift theaters and tents that were in the Villa for comedies and colloquial shows that were represented by comedians at parties, there wasn’t, until the late nineteenth century, a theater, as required by the already important city of San Miguel. It is in April of 1871 when the construction of the theater started under the initiative of the Principal Revenue Manager Don Juan Mañón, with the help of the Municipal Treasury, and a group of the main residents of the city. Two years later in 1873, the construction was completed with adobe walls and roof shingles, waiting for its opening, without even having thought of a name for it. A magnificent coincidence solved both issues, as it was the time when the Mexican soprano Angela Peralta surprised Mexico with her wonderful voice, being in the state of Guanajuato around those days. It was decided by neighbors who were delighted by the idea of Angela Peralta inaugurating the theater giving it her name in memory of the great event. It was decided by neighbors who were delighted by the idea of Angela Peralta inaugurating the theater giving it her name in memory of the great event. Peralta gratefully accepted and in late April went to San Miguel, she caused so much enthusiasm once she reached the city which upon reaching the step called the Cachinches, on the banks of the city, and she pulled the mules of the carriage to serve as a traction for the one that the famous Mexican Nightingale came in. She made her debut on Sunday May 11th with Rigoletto upon the neighborhood and village of San Miguel, which filled not only the theater but also the street. On the other days that she was there, Ruy Blas and the Troubadour sang, giving a final extraordinary function of opera, with Lucia Lammermor by general request. Such an elegant and intelligent host for San Miguel de Allende these remarkable and heartfelt words of Peralta, that other publics would envy: "Before leaving this cheerful and friendly city, where from its authorities to the humblest of its children have filled me with considerations; giving my last farewell to my new and dear friends, that try beyond what could be rationally expected to give me until the end to honor my memory inaugurating under my name its new and elegant theater, I want to leave proof of my special recognition, and for this I have organized a function, that in the capital of the Republic would be envious of, and that, against my habit, I dedicate each and every one of the children of San Miguel de Allende, as the kindest memory of my affection, as the purest expression of my deep gratitude. " After the opening of the new theater Angela Peralta, all associations that went to Guanajuato, also acted in San Miguel, in addition to the permanent association of fans who was formed by Don Jose Manuel de Sauto in 1880. After the opening of the new theater Angela Peralta, all associations that went to Guanajuato, also acted in San Miguel, in addition to the permanent association of fans who was formed by Don Jose Manuel de Sauto in 1880. In 1886 the first repair was made to the theater, with the cooperation of the painter and decorator Don Nicolás González Caballero, a repair that was ordered by the association of fans, which was composed of the following neighbors: Ma.

The construction of this historic building in the city of Guanajuato, began in 1797 with the purpose of serving as a granary for the population, and took twelve years to complete. Its builders were Juan de Dios Trinidad Perez and Francisco Ortiz de Castro which used a budget of 218,306 pesos. The building has hosted important national events, and now houses the Regional Museum of Guanajuato under the supervision of the National Institute of Anthropology and History (INAH). History Right after the construction was finished in 1809, food began to be stored inside and it was a year later when the independence battle, for which it is best known, took place: On September 28th, 1810, the rebel army arrived to Guanajuato, rich Spaniards and some natives took refuge inside, because they were loyal to the king and also feared that their resources would be taken away. So thanks to thick walls and sturdy doors, those inside thought they could withstand the assault. Thanks to the mining hero known as 'Pípila ' the capture was achieved, he tied a slab of stone onto his back, and approached the door to set it on fire. It was only thanks to the mining hero known as 'The Pípila ' the capture was achieved, he tied a slab of stone onto his back (so he wouldn’t get shot ), he got close enough to sprinkle oil on the door and set it on fire, achieving to let in the rebels. It should be noted that the realists were practically massacred. In another event, after the defeat of the troops commanded by Hidalgo and Allende, it was ordered for all the heads of these (besides Aldama and Jose Mariano Jimenez ) to be hung in cages that were located in the four corners of the " Castle of Granaditas " as a sign of punishment of those who were rebelled against the viceroy. These heads were exposed for almost ten years. After gaining independence the granary was still used to store grain, as well as being the venue for buying and selling grain and later served as military barracks, until the time of the second empire of Maximilian of Hapsburg in 1864, when it became a prison. In fact, it is still possible to see places where prisoners carved signatures, drawing and other things with stones. The prison was later abandoned in 1949, and in 1958 the federal and state government of the state of Guanajuato decided to turn it into a museum. This museum has a total of fourteen rooms (ten permanent exhibitions) with themes of archeology, history, art and crafts of Guanajuato, among others. It has celebrated both its 200th anniversary of its founding as well as 50 years of its didactic use for lectures, temporary exhibitions, book presentations and photographs, as well as conferences of various intellectuals. It is noteworthy to mention that many institutions include a visit to the granary as a part of their curriculum, so if you decide to visit, it is almost certain that you will find primary and secondary students. Their influx in high visiting season is more than eight hundred visitors a day, on average. Architecture With the dimensions of 75 meters long by 68 meters wide and a height of 23 meters, the granary is a sample of neoclassical style of the colony. It has no decorations on the outside except Doric style cornice of green and red. So, remember some buildings of the Tuscany, typical of that era. Likewise, the interior is decorated with murals of the painter José Chávez Morado, a native of the state. These murals were restored in 2009, which is why they currently look very colorful. If you are passing through Guanajuato, the granary is a place that you should not miss!

Little Planet How this Virtual Tour was made Making the virtual tour of the granary brought back memories of my childhood. When in my History of Mexico class the teacher told us that heroism of Pípila was actually true, that his origin was not a myth or legend, he was a brave man, the essential savor of his time, the flame that perhaps without it, the door of the granary would have never been set on fire and the insurgent army of Hidalgo would not have beaten the Spaniards who were hiding in that place; perhaps many years would have passed for Mexico to be a free and sovereign country. Visiting Guanajuato is a formidable experience to photograph countless beautiful places with a lot of history.
The University has data from the eighteenth century, colonial stage of Villa de Guanajuato, it has its bases at the Hospice of the Holy Trinity, installed on the first of October 1732, which was home room of its promoter Doña Teresa Busto and Moya, who with the cooperation of 14 rich miners of the city managed to install the first educational establishment in Guanajuato. The Hospice was history of the College of the Society of Jesus, of the ladies of Busto and Moya, and in this Hospice, served by five Jesuit missionaries, the teaching of letters and spiritual guidance to children and adults around. In 1744, the Spanish Crown gave a license so the hospice would become the College of Jesuitas instead of the College of the Holy Trinity, imparting arts courses and grammar lectures, keeping the school of “the first letters” for the children of mineworkers, maintain the campus with donations from Mrs. Busto and Moya, and the one that was given in 1738 by Don Pedro Bautista Lascuráin de Retana, consisting of four farms whose products was to be invested in the funding of a professorship of arts and support four missionaries. The College of the Holy Trinity formed a group of fifteen philosophers, graduated in 1763, all of them from the economically weak groups of Guanajuato who work on days off to spend the day studying; they were all later teachers in the various schools of Jesuits installed in the country. The construction of the Temple began on July 26th, 1747 and the College on the 29th of October 1759, in July of 1767 the Jesuits were banished, and the school was left only having one floor.

In this professional level the professions of Mining and Law were founded, the professions of ecclesiastical and an Academy of Painting, Sculpture and Architecture were subsistent, the school had a public Library since 1831. For a long period, from 1828 to 1867, the College of the Purisima had periods of flowering and decay, there were numerous graduates of the College who gave prestige to the institution and the country in the field of law, like Manuel Bending, Octaviano Muñoz Ledo and Ponciano Burquiza ; in letters like Juan and Ramon Valle, José Rosas Moreno and Lucio Marmolejo In 1867, the campus changed its name to National College of Guanajuato. From 1870 to 1882, Technical and scientific careers proliferated, research flourishes and many of the inventors and discoverers won international awards for their work, Severo Navia, Vicente Fernandez, Juan N. Contreras, Juan Bonifacio Olivares, Guerrero and Nicéforo Manuel Villasenor are some of the examples of the excellence in teaching of the State College . Until 1915 the State College had the support of rulers like Florencio Antillon and Francisco Z. Mena that worried about the future of knowledge. In 1945, thanks to the enthusiasm, the dynamism and firmness of Mr. Armando Olivares Carrillo, the last director of the State College, this became the University of Guanajuato.

In 1952 the rector Antonio Torres Gomez created the School of Music Symphony Orchestra of the University and the School of Dramatic Arts, this last one although not long-lasting, constituted a fundamental background for the staging of the Cervantinos Entremeses -germen International Cervantino Festival - thanks to the vision and effort of Enrique Ruelas and Eugenio Trueba Olivares, who, on the other hand, being rector of the University founded two cultural institutions that remain forefront of cultural diffusion in the region: the Cine Club and Radio University, besides being the main promoter of the University Theater, which continues to represent the Cervantinos Entremeses in the Plaza of San Roque in the city of Guanajuato. On the night of April 13, 1963, presented for the first time in the Plaza of San Roque and as a complementary event to Cervantinos Entremeses, the musical group known as the “Estudiantina” of the University of Guanajuato. That same night, this group would also create the musical spectacle that characterizes the city known as the Callejoneada. This group is the first of its kind established in America and that would have a strong echo in the emergence of new estudiantinas and “tunas”, across the country, then the rest of the continent. In October 1991, while Master Juan Carlos Romero Hicks was rector, the university community was invited to participate in the process of autonomy and regulatory reform; on May 11th, 1994 the LV Legislature of the State Congress passed the Organic Law of the University with which it obtained the authority and responsibility to govern itself.

More than a decade later, in full exercise and responsibility for their autonomy, the university community relived an intense transformation process that led to a multi-campus structure and a new academic model that will allow the institution to better respond to the needs of society in terms of coverage, relevance and educational offerings. The new process of change was led by the now former rector, Dr. Arturo Lara Lopez, and gave rise to a draft of the organic law, which was approved by the University Council on May 16th 2006, a document that indicates institutional will of adopting a new organic and academic model characterized by a multi-campus structure, the departmental performance and matrix of its higher education subsystem and the integration of a subsystem of high school. On May 31st 2007, the LX Constitutional Legislature of the state of Guanajuato unanimously approved the new Organic Law of the University of Guanajuato, and on June 15th of that year, the State Governor, Juan Manuel Oliva Ramirez, published in the Official Gazette of the State of Guanajuato such regulations for its entry into force on October the 15th.

With a budget of 700 thousand pesos and thanks to the efforts of the rector Torres Gomez, on the 4th of February 1950 the construction of the Auditorium of the University began, in addition to classrooms, workshops and offices of the Faculty of Engineering in the building of Lascuráin Retana. From the beginning the monumental staircase was projected, which along with the facade constituted an unmistakable symbol of the identity of the university and icon of the city of Guanajuato. These works, along with the auditorium and other spaces were conceived and executed by the Arq. Vicente Urquiaga Rojas.
